Living as a dog on Block Island for a day is the ultimate dream. With pristine beaches to explore, sprawling nature trails to try and sniff out an orb, and a welcoming community full of dog-friendly establishments, Block Island offers a doggo-paradise like no other!

As a dog on Block Island, there is a vast playground of natural wonders. From the stunning beaches along Corn Neck Road, over 28 miles of meandering walking trails, the island offers endless opportunities for exploration. They can accompany their human companions on hikes, reveling in the scents and sounds of the lush greenery, and if they're lucky - even sniff out a glass float hidden along the trails - it has happened before!

Block Island's variety of landscapes provide a sensory overload for dogs, awakening their natural instincts and providing them with a true connection to the island's unspoiled beauty.

Remember, all dogs must be leashed on Block Island! Check out Mutt Hutt, a doggos shopping dream. They have such a wide variety of treats, toys, leashes, collars, and harnesses - all Block Island themed. What's better than that? Check out their website too, at
